A Rockland County man was busted at a police checkpoint in Pearl River with an illegal license while allegedly driving drunk on Tuesday afternoon, police said.
Officers from the Orangetown Police Department arrested Spring Valley resident Carlos Remache-Toalongo, 30, at approximately 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 27, following a stop at a safety checkpoint on North Middletown Road.
Police said that during the stop, it was determined that Remache-Toalongo was operating his 1997 Honda while intoxicated and with suspensions on his license due to previous alcohol-related convictions. He was arrested at the scene and charged with a felony count of aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle and driving while intoxicated, a misdemeanor.
Remache-Toalongo was arraigned and released to a sober third-party. He is due back in Orangetown Justice Court on March 27 to answer the charges.
